globalSight TMS first to offer XML preview

XLIFF file conversions are no longer needed to view xml format

Frederick, Maryland USA – June 15, 2010 – GlobalSight’s open-source TMS is the first translation management system to offer an in-context XML file preview. This GlobalSight feature allows translators and reviewers to see the impact of their language changes in the true final file layout rather than just working in an unstructured XML code view.

“This new feature is important for many reasons,” states Derek Coffey, Director of Technology at Welocalize, “not only does it improve the experience for translators and reviewers by giving them the benefit of context when creating the translation, but for many companies it will mean a more simple workflow process and shorter leadtimes as the need to export in progress translations back to source systems has been removed”
